Weekend tour to the Edge of the world, Mud Village, Masmak, Old Market, National Museum, Old Deryah

Very first I would like to thank Ms.Rokaia for helping me arrange this weekend tour which I was looking for desperately. She was very understanding and handled my queries patiently since it was first tour in Saudi Arabia and I wasn't sure if should go or not. She provided me all the necessary information which made it easy for me to make decision to book this tour. I appreciate her knowledge, patience and welcoming attitude.
On Friday I visited the Mud village the real name is Ushaiger village which is listed in the world's heritage places. We had a warm welcome there with local arabic coffee, tea and dates. It was very nice to see this village which was established more than 300 years ago where all homes are made of mud. It was fun to explore the village through the narrow streets. We also visited a local museum there. The owner has been collecting precious and antique items especailly from Saudi Arabia and many other countries too. You will love to meet him and his hospitality was incredible. We were invited for lunch in one of the homes of the Mud village which was local Arabic food which I wanted to try here. Then we left for the Edge of the world. After the highway we got into the 4x4 Land Cruiser and had a super ride through the desert. The edge of the world is a must visit place and the views are breathtaking. One must experience the sunset time from the top of the Edge Of The World.
On Saturday we visited Masmak fortress, Old Market, National Museum, Old Deryah. The Masmak fortress is big and has got lot of information about the rulers. The National Museuem is really awesome and it has all the information about Saudi Arabia, all the rulers, the states, the religion, the culture, how the Kingdom of Arabia was formed and much more. Then we went to the local market which is very old and can buy antique items, carpets, our, gold etc. I bought some antique gifts from here and I'm sure my family will be pleased to have this items at home. We had lunch in a very very special and very famous Arabic restaurant which was like a feast. The food was very tasty and I got to enjoy a lot of local dishes. The tour guide gave us lot of information about each place and event from the history which helped me connect with this place, country, culture and people. Both days were very good as I got to see the natural wonder and also got to know so much about Saudi Arabia.
A big thanks to Saudi Arabia Tours and Ms.Rokaia again for arranging this tour for me! This is a must visit tour one should do in Saudi Arabia.
